December 01, 2017 // Franchising.com // Denver, CO - Denver based Smiling Moose Rocky Mountain Deli has announced that their 16th location is slated to open in Denver, Colorado in late December, 2017. The new, 3500 square foot restaurant will be located at corner of University Boulevard and East Evans Avenue directly across from the prestigious University of Denver Campus. This will be the third location in the Denver metro area and the fifth in the state of Colorado. Smiling Moose, a fresh, fast-casual franchise, is known for their award-winning grilled sandwiches, like the Original Mo!, a unique twist on New York’s classic ‘chopped cheese’ sandwich.
With four other Colorado locations, this new Smiling Moose restaurant will provide Denver residents with a bold flavor experience complete with hearty portions that are made-to-order using premium house-made ingredients. Guests will be able to enjoy handcrafted assortments that range from irresistibly messy hot sandwiches, custom-chopped salads and mouthwatering cold sandwiches, savory soups, wraps and fresh baked cookies…not to mention, piping hot breakfast sandwiches and skillets are served all day, every day. Smiling Moose is proud to feature adventurous house-made sauces, like their zesty lemon pesto aioli and signature cranberry chipotle mayo. This will also be the first Smiling Moose location to feature a full bar with innovative cocktail creations as well as an enhanced brunch program featuring all-you-can-eat pancakes, bottomless mimosas and bloody marys.
This new location will be the first corporate opening since the acquisition of Smiling Moose by Rightway Brands, Inc. in late 2016. After a major seven-figure capital injection, the brand is actively growing and seeking additional real estate for new corporate locations across Colorado while pursuing experienced multi-unit franchises throughout the United States and in targeted international markets.
Smiling Moose president and CEO, Rich Eisenberg, is thrilled to be bringing the Smiling Moose experience to the University of Denver. According to Eisenberg, “The DU area is a perfect location for a Smiling Moose. We will be providing a new and unique dining experience to the many students, faculty and professionals in the area. We are confident that the hard-working, fun-loving, intelligent students and young professionals will fall in love with our bold, flavorful food and craft cocktails.”
Along with the core menu items, Smiling Moose offers flavorful vegetarian and gluten-friendly options to fulfill every guest’s dietary needs and taste preferences, as well as a variety of kids’ meal options. Guests in a hurry can also skip the line by ordering on their phone using the Smiling Moose app. In addition, DU faculty members and Denver’s businesses in the area will be thrilled with customizable catering options covering breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as large off-site events. Be warned, the Moose is soon to be on the loose near Denver University!
